The Destination of Prayer

prayer3“It feels like my prayers before God simply fade into the air before me.” Looking at Revelation 8:3-4 confronts this idea. It says, “Another angel, who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of all God’s people, on the golden altar in front of the throne. The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of God’s people, went up before God from the angel’s hand.” Here we read that the prayers of God’s people are placed before the throne of God, raising before Him. The things you converse with God about – requests, complaints, praises, etc. – are before Him in His glory. Be assured by this passage that your voice is heard, and God hears. Be blessed by this truth and pray with the confidence of this reality.

Wow. It's Quiet Here...
